Plot Overview

Hawaiian detective Tracy Steele brings Jeff to a remote part of Hawaii on an undercover assignment--finding a thief and stolen money for an insurance company. A femme fatale attaches herself to him as part of a plan for her boyfriend, a thief, to escape the Island with the proceeds from a payroll robbery. Jeff's the perfect patsy...he's got the same height and build as the thief, who's planning on faking his death with Jeff playing the role of a corpse.
